A person charged with a violent crime requires a strong and sophisticated defense.  Judges are often tough on people accused of violence, and juries usually demand evidence that contradicts the prosecution before voting to acquit.  

There are many different types of violent offenses, including assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, attempted murder, armed assault with intent to murder, and mayhem.  Sometimes charges of violence are accompanied by additional accusations such as threats to commit a crime, violation of a restraining order, or weapons charges.  Every case is unique and requires special preparation.

I have significant experience defending clients accused of violent crimes and am hired to represent clients in many different scenarios.

In a jury trial in Suffolk Superior Court, I represented a client accused of violently assaulting four different people, including stabbing several people during an armed robbery.  One of the stabbing victims was significantly injured and required emergency surgery. Prior to trial, I worked with a defense investigator who uncovered crucial information that the prosecution never developed.  At trial, I called several witnesses who testified in my client’s favor.  We even subpoenaed a police officer to testify about an occasion he witnessed aggressive behavior by an important prosecution witness.  The jury found my client NOT GUILTY of all charges, including armed assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, and mayhem.

In a jury trial in Suffolk Superior Court, I represented a man accused of assaulting a family member with a firearm.  The particular firearm charge at issue meant that the client faced a significant mandatory minimum sentence if convicted.  At trial, the prosecution played a 911 call by the family member that the prosecution believed would prove its case.  The police also found a gun in the house.  Despite this evidence, I challenged the credibility of the alleged victim and revealed a pattern of manipulative behavior and false accusations.  The jury found my client NOT GUILTY of all assault and firearm charges.  

In a jury trial in Cambridge District Court, I was hired to represent a client accused of hitting a pedestrian with her car during an alleged “road rage” incident.  My client was charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.  One of the prosecution witnesses to the incident was a priest who even testified in his religious clothing.  Nonetheless, I vigorously cross-examined all of the Commonwealth’s witnesses and exposed the flaws in the prosecution’s case.  The jury found my client NOT GUILTY.

In a case out of Brighton District Court, I represented a client charged with assault and battery on a woman he was dating.  Through defense investigation, I located a surveillance video of the alleged victim maliciously damaging a car belonging to my client’s female friend.  It turned out that the alleged victim fabricated her accusations against my client after she suspected he was romantically involved with his female friend.  After I produced the surveillance video, the alleged victim refused to testify by taking her 5th Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and the case was DISMISSED.

In a case out of Lynn District Court, I represented a client accused of bank robbery.  A surveillance video depicted a man resembling my client committing the robbery, and a bank teller identified my client as the robbery from a photographic array assembled by the police.  Upon investigation, I was able to establish a conclusive alibi for my client and all charges were DISMISSED.

These are only some of my victories in cases involving violent offenses.
